What’s Hot!



We are in a Technology Revolution!  Are you ready for these changes!  Our choices for entertainment have taken a major leap forward.


I have been in this industry for 47 years this year and we have seen many changes, but none as exciting as what we are now and soon going to see!  The Internet is providing us with all types of content.


Sonos products are now allowing us to give you music in your home without wires!  Yes wireless music!  It is fantastic!  AM-FM radio crystal clear streamed over the internet as well as free and subscription music services.  It is like having a CD changer going all the time!  And now many of them come with Alexia.  A voice interface that allows you to request via voice music, weather and other info.


Just about every system we are installing today now requires an internet connection!  From the new A/V receivers from Onkyo, BluRay DVD players and the new TV’s can take advantage of accessing the internet for program sources.


I am prodicting that within 2 - 3 years a major change in how you view your TV programing.  Smart TV’s are here now from Sony, Samsung, LG that allow you access to the worldwide web for TV programs, movies and social networking.  For more in depth discussing please give us a call.  We love to help you understand this technology!!

Well it is here now with people streaming movies and TV shows from NetFlix, Amazon Prime and may others.  People are cutting the cord with their cable companies.  All you need today is a good internet connection!

Technology Revolution


Technology Updates:


Technology Revolution!  Years ago we wired most of the Centex Homes and others with the UStec Structured Wiring System. Due to lack of interest or need, your home did not receive the upgrade options at that time.  Today there are many services on the market that use the internet to bring us our entertainment.   Here are a few of these services and devices that use the internet:  Xbox Live, Sony Play Station 3, BluRay DVD players & HD TV’s.


What are we talking about?

Today most families use the internet for their computer systems.   Many of us have more then one computer running at the same time!   Are your kids using the computer for homework?   Architectural Video pre-wired many of your homes to allow for multiple devices to access the internet at the same time.  That is the green CAT 5 wire in the cabinet that isn’t doing anything or we can come in and possibly upgrade your wiring.


What do we need to do!

We need to install some new jacks and a router to create a LAN (local area network) in your home.  Architectural Video sells several brands of HD TV’s (Sony, LG, and Samsung) that now have a web browser built into the TV or you can upgrade to a Blu-ray DVD player that also has a web browser built in.  These units are then connected to the internet to allow you to access movies, music and info!  Examples:


Netflix® Instant Streaming Ready •  Vudu™ (Streaming) •  YouTube™ •  Roxio® CinemaNow •  Pandora® Internet Radio • Picasa™ Web Albums •  AccuWeather®
